and not really here either? >> no. we have a full moon tomorrow. nice and clear out there tonight. you might be able to see it. warmer in some spots and cooler elsewhere. as we head outside let's look at live doppler 7hd. you notice we aren't talking about any sort of precip. that has since moved out of here and high pressure is building in. we will look for a quiet radar return today. the rest of your weekend and into the next several days. here's a look downtown where temperatures are very mild, in the 50s from san francisco and oakland. san jose much cooler at 40. upper 30s petaluma. 46 in stanley cruise. livermore you are 10 degrees cooler. concord, i should say, 10 degrees cooler than yesterday. the near east bay is mild but in the valleys we are talking chilly conditions. 49 concord and 47 in fair feel. very gusty winds here. if the winds aren't warming you up, the lack of wind is cooling you off. santa rosa 34.
5:49am
44 gilroy. but the winds are basically out of the north w that gusty north wind in fairfield, this is allowing for a better mixed atmosphere and a warmer start for some of you. but for most we will see the warming today, that north wind at 22. sfo and elsewhere a little jump start with the sunny conditions. that allows for the warmest day to be today out of the weekend. yesterday it was cool with more 50s and 60s. today we will see more 50s than 60s unless you are at the coast. dry and mild the rest of the week. march coming in friday very quietly. in fact we are going to look at maybe the next chance of rain into the next weekend. so still high pressure firmly in control. we've got the high building closer to the coast and the low moving into the great basin. so the pressure gradient not as steep, but we are looking at that those north winds. the north win are the warming winds, especially for the north bay. and that cooling offset from the
5:50am
cool pacific waters. we will get the win direction elsewhere today. across the state, numbers warming up everywhere. they are talking mid-60s sacramento and chico. still a little cool at the coast, 71 los angeles and back home numbers there be pretty pleasant from fremont and oakland. 64 for a high today in oakland. as you head to the north, take a look at that, 67 and 6 in santa rosa. but still keeping it cool with 58 half moon bay, 63 in santa cruz. so here's the accuweather seven-day forecast. temperatures today much warmer than yesterday at the coast and even inland. i should say the other way around, in planned coast. we are looking at a the cooling tomorrow. a weak system to the north of us will allow the numbers to be in the low to mid-60s. very little change until the end of the week when we see lower 70
